To bolster your point, Jason Kidd is currently #26 all-time in defensive rebounds, which is a statistic I find to be pretty amazing (he was #25 when I wrote this post, but has since been passed by Pau Gasol). He was also selected nine times to be All-NBA Defensive First- or Second-Team
Over the majority of the last 11 eleven years Dwayne Wade has arguably been either the best or 2nd best shooting guard in the NBA, with his only real peer or equal being Kobe Bryant, a player who is often matched against Michael Jordan as best ever, or best ever shooting guard. That is how good Dwayne Wade has been. Its rarefied air. He is a little shorter than Bryant or Jordan with fewer distinctive "call it your own signature" moves. He has garnered less overall publicity. Before Lebron James joined the Heat Wade led them to one NBA championship in 2006 playing with an older somewhat over the hill , on a downward career level, but still sometimes dominant Shaq. Regardless Wade is among the best players in basketball history. He has had a unique combination of extraordinary explosiveness, superior body control, an ability to keep the basket in his vision, when his legs were stronger a very effective outside shot, and an ability to attack the basket from any angle that has been at the very highest level of basketball history. Wade has attacked the basket so often and consistently over a decade that he has taken innumerable tumbles and falls and crashes. Its no wonder his body, legs and knees are a "wreck". This year the Heat rested Wade all season long. He kept missing games. They occurred consistently and sporadically. (huh) but throughout the season. Dwayne Wade was not an all star. Over the last three games Wade has played exceptionally well, demonstrating his unique skills. The Heat closed out Brooklyn in a competitive game, Lost to Indiana in the first game of that series, and beat Indiana in the 2nd game, at Indiana. In the latest game really only Wade and Lebron James consistently shown for Miami. If Miami is to once again win the NBA championship, a fragile wounded Dwayne Wade will have to play well throughout the Indiana series and then against whomever they face from the West. Will he or won't he? TBD. A long but extraordinary video of Dwayne Wade highlights over the years. Singular and spectacular attacking the basket, astonishing body control, superb leaping ability, breathtaking defense, moves that embarrass defenders:
